Abstract. Validation of probabilistic models based on
goodness-of-fit tests is an essential step for the frequency
analysis of extreme events. The outcome of standard test-
ing techniques, however, is mainly determined by the behav-
ior of the hypothetical model, FX(x), in the central part of
the distribution, while the behavior in the tails of the distri-
bution, which is indeed very relevant in hydrological appli-
